Virginia Sexual Harassment Training Requirements
While sexual harassment training in Virginia is not specifically required by state statute, it is generally recognized that employers should provide training. See, e.g., Alexandria Human Rights Commission recommending employers provide their employees and supervisors with training about sexual harassment).
Additionally, EEOC guidelines and court decisions from around the country have made clear that employers should provide workplace harassment training to all employees periodically. The training should cover sexual harassment and all other forms of unlawful harassment related to federal and state protected characteristics.
Virginia law prohibits workplace harassment and employment discrimination based on protected characteristics such as age (40+), color, disability, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, national origin, race (including traits historically associated with race, such as hair texture, hair type, and protective hairstyles such as braids, locks, and twists), religion, sex/gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding/lactation, and related conditions), sexual orientation, and veteran status. See Virginia Human Rights Act; Virginians with Disabilities Act; and Va. Code. Ann. § 40.1-28.7:1 (prohibiting discrimination on the basis of genetic information).
Local ordinances may provide broader protections, so you should check the local Civil Rights Commission regulations applicable to your workplace.
